Louie Giglio, pastor of Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and the founder of the Passion Conferences, captured a moving scene and posted it on Instagram on Tuesday: a fallen U.S. soldier whose casket was being taken off of his flight.
“Very sobering flight to Pensacola today knowing the body of this fallen U.S. service member is literally traveling home beneath my seat,” Giglio wrote. “What a humbling reality.”
